In actual news: I really should have put money on Gallas reverting to his previous form as whinging cocksucker. How about you just play better, moron?
I was hoping he would go with Henry to Barcelona. Chelsea got the baragin of the century offloading him in part exachange for cashley.
always tears me in two....I'm so surprised Gallas has been rubbish for you guys, but he has been injured too.
Cole has not been the player we were told we were getting....
whenever he got the ball he just launched it hopefully high and as far as he could. Bridge was infinitely better last season.
deserves to be the starting LB next season....
but it still goes:
in the best english left back list.
more left midfield last season didn't he? Certainly more effective in my eyes.
I'd definitely have Bridge ahead of Cole based on form.
we would only get about £6 million for Gallas now.
one of the best CB in the Premier League. You need him injury free and happy.
And we get Campbell back? I like it.
I've always like Primus. Granted mostly because of his name, but I've heard he's a good defender too.
another interesting fact about him is that he didn't start playing professionally until he was 40.
Defoe and Kanoute, officially.
Plus, I see this as an investment and I don't think £6m is too much when compared to £16.5m for Bent.
goal yet. I think Nugent will do alright. Probably get 10-15 goals. He's a pretty good target man though, can bring players into play.

Harry is historically one of the best managers in terms of getting 'the best' out of any talent* and I believe he can do it for Nugent and we'll be selling him on for a lot more than £6m.
(* - excluding his tenure at West Ham, particularly the legendary 96/97 season and the influx of Eastern Europeans)
despite playing for an average (at best) side...
he's not african in the slightest! what's happened to "'Arry"?!
is about £3 million too much for Nugent. Good player, honest player and a great Everton fan...but not a top class Premiership striker. I'm sure he'll develop, but £6 million is too much.
He was basically angling for a move to Everton all the way through, but Moyse stayed with his policy of only paying what he thinks players are worth. Told PNE he wouldn't pay more than £4 million. Good luck to him though.
but i fear you're embarking on a false dawn. Muntari will do nothing for you next season (apart from maybe get a few red cards) and Nugent's just an fairly good championship striker.
Good luck to Pompey and Nugent - let's see what happens! (Jusy don't score against us!)
he'll have some stipulation in his contract that will let him sign for Everton if they will match what Pompey have paid for him.
He obviously couldn't give a fuck about Portsmouth.
